Prediction

The Mavericks have won 3 of their last 4 games and just beat the Suns who are one of the best teams in the league but they have struggled on the road this season with a 2-8 record. The Nuggets lost their last 2 games on the road but they return home where they have lost only 2 games. The Mavs are on the 2nd of back to back so there's a chance that Luka Doncic could play less minutes on this game. Dallas is 1-3 playing on no rest games so go with the Nuggets to get the win at home.
